Review: Horse Jumper of Love – So Divine

horsejumperalbum

Horse Jumper of Love, out of Boston, Massachusetts write slow meandering music like early Pinback that builds its way to reverb frenzied guitar solos hitting you with a wall of sound after gently rocking you to pre-sleep reverie. They also remind me a bit of Built to Spill, especially on their rock jam-band closing to “Airport.” Through their carefully drawn lyrical explorations of emotion and purpose they pull you in with slow nodding introductions that ever so carefully rise and rise.

So Divine is their third full length. Each song on this album follows the aforementioned playbook but the genre they employ is practiced with a tender touch that lends depth and complexity to their oft simple rhythms.

This is easy listening rock with a strained, emo quality (see: mid to latter parts of “Volcano”) that will draw you into reverie and give you an appreciation for slowing things down a bit.

The best track of the is “Airport” an intimate entreaty for direction and purpose. “Nature,” and “Airport” are also very strong with a shoe-gaze comfort to them.

This is easy listening rock that will draw you into reverie and give you an appreciation for slowing things down a bit. Their album is released tomorrow! Check out their EP, Nature/Airport/Poison today and come back tomorrow to find the full album link to Spotify or go order it from RUN FOR COVER Records.
